Well for this one, did a little research. The CTA stands for Chicago Transit Authority. Here we focus on the subways.. I think?!!?!! I'm pretty sure it is. Seems awkward it would stop without any station though, if in fact thats what it's doing. And nothing beats the scenes of a big ass train going through the middle of town (on a local street!) Its big and humongous, and its quite the spectacle.

Actually is IC Electric and South Shore
On the IC - pulling out of Randolph, at 63rd (the truss bridge is the Jackson Park branch of the CTA 'L', long since demolished), going out to Blue Island, other locations, then on the South Shore.
As a born in Chicago railfan, this is interesting material, but dang I wish I had a Wayback Machine so I could go tell the photographer to open his aperture a couple of F-stops or use faster film.
I'd give 5 stars except for the underexposure.
